    Hi, welcome to the forum. It's great to see your first post after 7 years! We're you considering asking for information about your coin back then? It appears you have already recently recieved a fair amount of information via a couple posts on Facebook groups about 2 weeks ago and again 2 days ago. Is there anything else that you need help with?

    Where did you get this coin back then? Did someone leave/give it to you? Did you purchase it? What do you find interesting about ancient coins? Do you have any other ancient coins in your collection?

    I don’t think the envelope fits this coin. The writing says “Const. de Gr.” I believe. Dutch for Constantijn de Grote or Constantine the Great.

    This coin was given to me in the netherlands from an elder. I have 1 other roman coin I can post for information. Yes I have posted in a few groups on facebook but being that I am not familiar with coins I wanted to broaden? Included is the other coin I have. I would like to know value of BOTH coins if able? Ive had these in my possession for 20 years or so. Thanks

    This one appears to be Constantine (IMP CONSTANTINVS PF AVG) with Mars on the reverse (MARTI PATRI CONSERVATORI) from the Trier mint (PTR) with T/F in fields.

    Some "similar" examples on Vcoins:

    Something about the portrait (nose, eye socket, cheek, hair), fabric (around the hair and fields on obverse), and wear (cheek bone but not the ear/radiate crown/hair) of your Augustus coin doesn't sit right in my gut (also the C is very box-y in it's shape where nearly all others appear to be really circular). I'm not an expert, though, so take from that what you will; simply one person's gut opinion. Maybe others will have differing opinions?

    If authentic, I'd guess it's value would be around the $150 mark. Here are some ranges of quality of the type sold at CNG.

    Your coin is:
    Augustus Æ Dupondius, RIC 56 [Caligula], Cohen 87 [Augustus], BMC 88
    Caligula & Divus Augustus Æ Dupondius. 37-41 AD. CONSENSV SENAT ET EQ ORDIN P Q R, laureate & togate statue of Gaius Caligula seated left on curule chair, holding branch / DIVVS AVGVSTVS S-C, radiate head of Divus Augustus left. Cohen 87

    It appears to be an excellent specimen and genuine. Congrats!
